Once upon a time, not so long ago, what was commonly referred to as the political silly season would starting late spring/early summer of an election year. The politically ignorant brain-dead slackers that are the Democrat base do not, by and large, encumber themselves with rational thought or facing the reality of what their benefactors have done to the country.
Nowadays an election cycle begins nanoseconds after the last election. It is a perpetual reality. This, I believe, is driven by phony journalists who graduate from the Kennedy School of Journalism and feel they must “change the world” instead of simply reporting it. They do not put forth the effort to actually investigate anything, just ape whatever the New York Times tells them to write.
Lets be clear: the democrat party would not, could not exist without the complicity of a media that a few decades ago still feigned impartiality. They carry out the attacks for democrats so they can stay above the fray and dutifully ignore the myriad outrages committed by liberals with impunity. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the scrubbing of Cankles’ subpoenaed hard drives, or Planned Parenthood selling baby parts as if they were at a swap meet. Their base is ignorant, lazy, and only interested in what’s in it for them.
Pity. The blissfully ignorant don’t see their party bigshots squirming as their chosen one ducks and dodges to avoid the consequences of the many felonies she’s committed. They also have a doddering old socialist promising everybody everything, paid for by a 90% tax rate.
On our side, there is a small army of contenders and pretenders all vying for a piece of the spotlight that The Donald is dominating right now. While I still maintain he will not be the nominee for a number of reasons, it’s fun watching him make talking heads explode. We have more than a year to see what happens. What the heck, I got nothing else to do.
